Re: battery issues

You go to a quality auto parts store and ask for a negative battery terminal. To remove old one- Loosen that rusty nut, use screwdriver to widen gap, pull old cracked terminal upwards. ALWAYS be careful not to ground out positive (Red) cable, it can explode, harm you, burn you, ect,.. Next, cut off old terminal with side cutters or similar tool. Use razor blade knife to trim back an inch of insulation, exposing shinny new copper to place the new one on. Install the new one following directions on package. *Before you cut off the broken terminal, make sure you have enough cable length to reach the battery with new terminal, your cable will obviously be shorter after cutting off old one.
